Out and about in
New South Wales

New South Wales arguably offers the greatest diversity of climate and landscape out of all the states and territories in Australia. Mild winters in all but the alpine regions and hot cyclone-free summers mean there’s never a bad time to go camping in NSW, and many of the best attractions and national parks are easily accessible for 2WD cars.

Plan a relaxing beach vacation along the north or south coast, get your adventure fix with a bushwalking, canyoning or skiing trip, go kayaking or fishing at NSW’s many rivers and lakes, seek out solitude in the vast outback and get to know the cities and towns where a pioneer past and vibrant, modern culture seamlessly interlace.

Epic beaches

Surfers, sun lovers and enthusiastic beach-goers are spoiled for choice in NSW. The whole coastline is etched out with sheltered coves and bays, as well as long stretches of sand wide open to barreling waves. If you’re fond of city escapes, NSW has no shortage of vibrant seaside towns where you can step out of your van and into the sand, and live like a local for a few days. Treat your toes to Jervis Bay’s snow-white beaches, or admire striking coastal rock formations in Ben Boyd National Park. Experience the boho vibes in Byron bay, surf culture in Scotts Head, or find a quiet spot away from it all, such as Seal Rocks, Minnie Water or Evans Head.

Majestic mountains

 Challenging hikes, massive ski resorts, remote 4WD tracks, mystical canyons, ancient volcanoes and glittering alpine lakes are just some of the rewards for exploring NSW’s Great Dividing Range. And you don’t even have to travel far from the madding crowd to enjoy them.Rainforested hills rise west of Coffs Harbour in Dorrigo National Park, the Blue Mountains are a striking sandstone labyrinth less than two hours from Sydney, while the highest peaks on the continent are reached easily via the tracks of Kosciuszko National Park, just 30 minutes from Jindabyne. 
 

Outback charm

 Blazing sunsets, crystal-black night skies and friendly rural communities await as you travel through the tablelands towards the NSW outback. The country towns out here are steeped in gold rush history, with recreational fossicking still a popular pastime in places such as Bingara, Nundle and Glen Innes, while historic villages decorate the hillsides out near Orange. The best stargazing in the country can be experienced in Coonabarabran, along with the striking volcano remnants that make up the Warrumbungle range. The drive days are long out here, so be sure to follow the thermal pool trail linking Pilliga to Moree to Lightning Ridge. And if you’re keen to camp well and truly off the grid, head for the border playgrounds of Mutawintji, Tibooburra and Willandra, just to get you started.
